I love these…

I could probably live without clothes and shoes but I couldn’t live without certain accessories such as necklaces.
I have tones of them and I love them! Some of them are very old and some are new but I love them all. On strange occasions I pass them on to friends or sisters as I need room for new ones.

Here are just 7 of my top 10. More to come soon. I don’t want to bore you to death just yet.

1 & 2-    I got this one in Portobello Market. It’s an Asian girl that has all these incredible pieces all made with torn wire! They do them in gold and silver. They also add some charms to them: mine has two mini butterflies that kind of move. I love this one. It was £24 but I got it down to £22. Well two pounds are two pounds you know. Tip: Never pay the asking price in Portobello!!

3-    The “Love” necklace I think was from Accessories. The lips are from a company I recently discovered called Mikey. The heart is from River Island. Can’t remember how much these were but I’m sure they were less than £15. I wouldn’t have paid more for them really.

4-    This one is from Aldo and it’s gorgeous! It looks really good when you wear just a plain t-shirt. Can’t remember the price but I’m sure it was a bit more than £15 or even £20.

5-    Butterflies! I loveee them. I have loads of thing with them actually. The sparkly one is from Top Shop and the other long one is again from Portobello. There is this stand in the market where everything’s £5 and this necklace is one of them. You can use it in so many different ways. Really nice.

And remember don’t spend silly money on expensive accessories…just walk a bit more and go into shops that don’t look that great from the outside. You will be surprised of what you can find inside. There are loads of nice things out there for less than £25!
